NVIDIA’s credit card-sized machine learning module ups to IQ of prototype drone

Silicon Valley-based commercial drone company Kespry has demonstrated a prototype drone that utilizes an NVIDIA artificial intelligence technology to recognize objects and learn about its environment. The prototype, which is based on the Kesprey Drone System already being sold to the materials, mining, and construction industries, uses the NVIDIA Jetson TX1 module, which ups the device’s intelligence by giving it the ability to run complex algorithms. NVIDIA unveiled the credit card-sized Jetson TX1 module in San Francisco this week, saying that it would enable a new generation of smart, learning autonomous devices. The module boasts 1 terraflop of performance and is capable of handling machine learning, computer vision, GPU computing, and graphics generation on very low power usage. NVIDIA claims the Jetson TX1 is the first embedded computer designed to…
